Zboss, that will work for you. This is not directed to you but just thought I would pass on a real world problem of AC that can happen. Many boats are wired to handle a maximum of 30 amps. But usually you never use 30 amps continuous. But if you do, it can result in fires as some components are not really rated for 30 amps continuous. If they are not problem.
But I helped a friend in Paradise Village, in Nuevo Vallarta, Mexico
, troubleshoot the loss of AC on his boat, along with the distinct odor
of burnt insulation
and plastic. He was on shorepower with his Catalina
42 (as I remember). He melted his AC shorepower/genset rotary switch. His wife was using her hairdryer and since it is very humid there, she had it on for several minutes. That, combined with whatever other AC usage was going on, was too much for the switch and it overheated to destruction. Scary. He could have lost
the boat and even gotten killed. Perhaps it was a loose connection on the switch that was the actual fault but I suspect the switch was just not up to the task.
Big chargers can use large amounts of AC. That is why many of them have settings to allow you to lower the max AC amps to below 30 amps (or 50), so that you still have enough AC to power other devices, and, to prevent overheating
caused by continuous high amps going thru components that are just not capable of continuous duty. It pays to over spec your wiring
components sometimes, and always put in wire that is capable of highest continuous current
you would expect to see. E.g. 10 ga wire is commonly used for 30 amp shore power
runs from the shore power
inlet. But if the run is really long, that is not big enough. Any way, the hair dryer thing was scary.
